On Integrity Constraints and Catalogues in Relational Database Supporting Clinical Research
Selected problems of integrity constraints within computer database supporting clinical research have been discussed in this paper. The concept of integrity constraints catalogues has been introduced, through examples on certain data structures taken from operational, cardiology-oriented relational database system. The limitations of design proposed and trends of possible future investigations have been examined in conclusions.
